Kelly Ripa’s boycott is over!
The Live! With Kelly and Michael! hostess with the mostess will return to the show on Monday, after a strange absence following the announcement of co-host Michael Strahan’s departure for Good Morning America.
“They’re both expected Tuesday,” a source tells People.com.
The web site reports Kelly sent an email to her staff, late Friday night, reading: “Sorry for this late Friday night email. I wanted to thank you all for giving me the time to process this new information. Your kindness, support, and love has overwhelmed me. We are a family and I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning. Love, Kelly.”
After Tuesday’s announcement, Ripa went missing, leaving producers scrambling to fill her seat. After guest hosts jumped in for the rest of the week, Kelly’s finally set to come back. Various reports claim Kelly would be more than happy if Strahan’s exit happens earlier than the planned September departure.
Can’t wait to see her back on the show Tuesday and all the wonderful awkwardness that ensues!
